My wife had seen some reviews about the restaurant but we hadn't mad a reservation and went out on a Sat evening to have a walk and decide what we wanted. We had a few options but we were both attracted to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. This was probably the best steak we have had and we... More

I have eaten at Mano's on numerous occasions, the most recent being for my great Uncle Michael's wedding. Wide range of meat dishes, all of which are delicious, accompanied with multiple sides so no-one should go hungry. The stand out for me is the Terra E Mar Espetada: A skewer of steak pieces and big king prawns wrapped in bacon... More

Visiting my dad and this was the restaurant of choice for our last night and it certainly did not disappoint. I'm a big fan of espitadas and apparently this is the place to sample them. I had the beef and king prawn version while the others had the beef and chicken one. Prawns were lovely and meaty and had bacon... More

Our first meal in a Portuguese restaurant, I tried a fish dish served with sweet potato and banana flambe. Unusual combination of flavours and delicious. This came with rice, chips and a fried dish which when we asked about it was told it was polenta. Very delicate flavour. Plenty to eat and reasonable costs. We saw others eating what looked... More

Found this place by accident as we were wandering around looking for somewhere to have an evening meal. Friendly lady found us a seat outside which was most welcome as it was a very warm evening. The service was prompt, so nice to have a jug of water and basket of bread given without asking. We had starters, my husband... More

On our return trip to Jersey we had to come back to Manos. Fabulous food, great service! This really is worth a visit, as the food is so good. Beware, the Espetada's are so big that you won't need a starter, and will find that with the assortment of accompaniments you can't eat it all!

Everything was faultless - we were there for a family birthday - just 5 of us and we went early at 6.15 - book at the week-end to guarantee a table - the food was delicious - cooked to perfection - exactly as requested - 4 of us had traditional Portuguese dishes - 1 had a fillet steak which was...

My friends took me to Mano's for a lovely dinner. I chose the Espetados had the fish ones, tuna, king prawn and scallop. It was fabulous. Good atmosphere, was a bit noisy because there were a few parties in that night, still had a great night

Mano's came recommended to us by a local while spending a long weekend in Jersey. The restaurant wasn't easy to find but keep looking as it is tucked in the corner of a square. Make sure you book in advance as the restaurants get booked up quickly for the weekends. The service is good and the staff were friendly. The... More

A typically Portuguese restaurant with traditional dishes as well as normal meat and fish a la carte. Service very friendly. Meal was very good and the wine was good value also.
